Winter in July

1st July 2000

Immediately after finishing my last piece Summer Solstice at Sunset, I started experimenting with a new progression in C minor.  My techno friend thought it sounded like Tubular Bells. 

I worked on a few measures each day this week.   Each day of cloudy weather - neither here nor there.  After the summer solstice, it seems as if winter is already showing its face.  As long as the sun is hiding, I shall also hide.

I have a new theory.  I am most productive in my compositions when the weather is bad and when I overwork myself to other people's agendas.  Composing brings me back to myself.  In the language of music I can articulate the murmurs of my soul.
